COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed predominantly with organic 2- row, the malt bill is rounded out with organic light munich, organic 60L crystal and caravienna. Northwest Golding and Hallertauer hops provide a pleasant hop character. Right out of primary fermentation this beer is decidedly an American Pale Ale, but as it enters secondary, a bridge to Belgium is built with a dose of Brettanomyces Bruxellensis. A 5 week maturation results in slightly dry, fruity beer with a hint of floral Brett character that will evolve over time.

toxichop (597) - South Gate, California, USA - MAY 26, 2014
P: Murky amber with a one finger white head. S: Very earthy, wood, flowers and some cereal malt. T: Some earthy flavors, light green apples, with a clean and dry finish, M: Light with sparkling carbonation. O: Hard to pick up what is going on this beer when there is very little going on here. However, it is easy to drink (or easy to pound).

Cloudy golden color with small head. Wonderful aroma, deep, fresh, fruity, with mild Brett character; apricot wine; impression of hard cheese rind. Highly carbonated, smooth mouthfeel, rather dry; strong Brett character, providing also a strong astringency; a lot of bitter orange peel; the acidity is just mild.
Excellent.

djd07 (14521) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy orange with medium frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is tart fruit, strong funk, and oak. Medium mouthfeel with strong brett, spice, and nice lingering dry finish. Very good.

MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2014
translucent copper (wtf), large bubbled white ring laces lightly. Light plum and cherry skin nose, brown sugar showing. Light plum skin at front palate, chestnut and acetic hints before fruity cherry mid, under-attenuation apparent through sticky coin sweet finish, offset by acetic notes. Two wrongs, no rights.

jtclockwork (16600) - , New Jersey, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours orange gold with white head. Nose and taste of wild yeast, lemon, musk, toasty wood, light stone fruits, grassy grains and touch of peach. Lighter medium body. Easy drinking. Mildly acidic.

Bottle poured at proletariat with Andy. Pours a deep orange with light haze and orangey whitish head. Aroma is tame funk and light fruit - maybe some wine as well. Mouthfeel is lightly tart, not really sour, notes of fruits and grain.

pfrimshot (3) - California, USA - MAR 6, 2014 does not count
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2014 A ?beginner? sour.... Not too tart, not too floral and or fruity. It?s a balanced, malty, beer that just leans toward the Flemish sour territory. So.. marks against it in my books for not being distinctive. And a small deduction fit a copper-y aftertaste.
